Quit Smoking

Smoking is a very harmful habit that harms just about every organ in the body and reduces the overall health of the smoker. It is the leading cause of premature death in Canada as well as the leading cause of lung cancer which causes the greatest number of deaths. It also increases the risk of coronary heart disease and a stroke. by 2 to 4 times. In 2011, one in five, or about 5.8 million Canadians, smoked. One in ten 15- to 17-year-olds smoked in 2011 but were 3 times more likely to smoke in homes where someone smoked regularly. The cost of treating smoking diseases and condition can be quite expensive as health care spending related to smoking was in between 6% and 15 % of total annual healthcare costs in high income countries like Canada.
